ND Energy offers fellowships for undergraduate and graduate students to conduct energy-related research with ND Energy faculty affiliates at the University of Notre Dame. These fellowships support new advancements in energy technologies, systems, and infrastructures, while broadening the educational and research experiences of students receiving awards.
Student scholars are selected annually through a competitive application process. Awards are used to support student stipends, laboratory supplies, travel for students to present their research at a national conference, and if applicable, summer housing, meals, and other incidentals. The timeline for application submissions is as follows:
- Eilers and Forgash Graduate Student Fellowships: October 1 - November 15
- Slatt Undergraduate Student Fellowships: October 1 - November 15 and February 1-28
Student fellowship opportunities are made possible through the generosity of Notre Dame alumni and their families who support energy-related research and education at Notre Dame. Learn more about student research fellowships and meet current recipients at the links below.
